I understand where you are coming from, but dr13zhen guessed it spot on and that is going to be rewarded. His answer is the most correct answer possible.

"To enter the contest, all you have to do is guess the pull-strength of our Noble cable (in kilos or pounds) to the first-decimal place. Everyone can enter up to three times and the closest estimation takes the cake!"  I think kova4a deserves something.

Yeah,  but kinda weird to lose because of a 0.0002338kg difference coz it can't be that punctual with pounds vs kilos and a contest rule to maguess down to the first decimal number. Anyway, congrats to the winner

I think that both entries should be counted as tied, and the tie breaker should go to whomever guessed their entry first.

That's fine, kova4a can PM me directly and we can discuss the matter further.

 

The reason we asked everyone guess to the first-decimal place is two fold. 1) We wanted to keep things simple and 2) the testing equipment used to test the pull-strength of the cable only outputs to two decimal places. That being said, if we are going to revert back to the rules, it does not state that you can't guess to more than one decimal place.

146 lbs-force is a pretty darn strong cable.  Congrats to Noble Audio!

OMG OMG OMG... I am so super excited!!! I have never won anything like this before. Thanks so much for this contest you awesomesauce that is NOBLE!

So the guy guessed the cable strength exactly and with only one guess? He obviously knew the answer, someone else did and he had the honesty not to participate. I think it should go to the next closest.

Ooops, Just saw that there is a problem. Reacted to soon after just seeing the first post, heh. I'm sure we can resolve this peacefully. :)

Well, congratulations to whoever wins it,

But i have to say that to first decimal place means to first decimal place no more no less, specially in a case of tie !

Also giving one guess only direct to the spot, without using ur other guesses, make this hardly count as a guess, i dont take it as a reason to call him a winner directly, i would rather take it as a reason to call it a tie and find someway to sort it between them.

Thats my humble opinion, no offense to both users.

Congratulations again.

so the winner took JUST ONE guess and he gets it right 100% ?

ooooooooooooooooooooook.

post #1110 of 1214

OK, before this gets out of hand, I want to clarify something.

 

I only put one answer down because I did know the answer. I had seen a video they had made before the contest (on Vimeo I think) that was in a Bing search result when I looked up NOBLE products.

I was not aware that knowing the answer was not OK. I am not affiliated with NOBLE at all and I don't want this to start souring their good intentions with this awesome contest.

If that disqualifies me, so be it. I don't see how I did anything wrong, but I do not want this to cause issues for anyone, especially NOBLE.
